1. Could the Chicago Bears add these Las Vegas Raiders defensive linemen?

The Las Vegas Raiders have three defensive linemen who would be interesting additions to the team if they happened to lose Justin Jones this offseason. Bilal Nichols is a former Bears draft pick and probably has played too well to be considered for the need that the Bears have. Still, it will be interesting to see what type of money he gets on the open market.

The two names who could fill in for Jones are John Jenkins and Adam Butler. Jenkins is another former Bears player, but he has bounced around. He is going to be 35 this year but would come in cheap. If the Bears think that Gervon Dexter and Zacch Pickens can take a step this offseason, then someone like Jenkins is all that they need. Butler is a bit younger at age 30 and can do a little more than just play backup nose tackle. If the Bears want to see what someone like Pickens can do, but they want reliable depth in case he is not better in year two, someone like Adam Butler will fit into the Bears' plans in free agency.
